I am deeply attracted to the ordinary happenings in people’s lives. I am forever exploring stories and moments that keep my mind wandering, a state that has resulted in many sleepless nights. I try to give these generally unseen moments an important place in the history of urban life.
I am afraid that – unless I can make them stop and stare – people will not see what is in front of them.
I consider myself a Social Photographer. Due to my extensive use of documentary, street and journalistic photographic techniques, I have managed to capture the mundane in a way that makes people more interested in their daily social environments.
My prime purpose for capturing these images is to make people conscious about what happens before their eyes – the commonplace moments, things and events that would otherwise remain unseen. I’m trying to awaken empathy for the ordinary, to help ourselves avoid becoming trapped fully within our own selfish worlds.
Every image found in my works section responds to the aforementioned statement. Occasionally I stumble into peculiar social situations that deserve a deeper narrative, and each of these essays has a statement of its own.
